    Thanks! Heat wave here. We're about to go out to work while it is cool. DH is going to bush hog the pipeline, I'm going to start reclaiming the garden from the head high weeds and water my new giant Bermuda grass that I planted about a month and half ago. I watered daily until we started getting scattered showers once or twice a week. No rain, none in the forecast and the sand is turning to dust. I watered yesterday and will soak it again today.

    Good Morning to all. Hot as hades here! Another upper 90s day with feel like of 105-108. Same as yesterday, same until Monday when it is supposed to drop into upper 80s, less humidity. It will be welcome! With the heat, you dump so much hot water! But they need, drink and appreciate the fresh cool water I put back in. Shade is being used. Thankfully, there is plenty for everyone!

    So, even with the heat, morning coffee is welcome. It's on and being consumed here. Help yourself! Ahhh, caffeine -- the get up & go choice.

    Back to work today. But 12:30 start gives me mornings to do chores & check all. Hottest of day, inside working. Home as it begins to cool (cool???? staying close to 80 all night!). It works. At least still daylight this time of year at 7PM.

    My half feral cat brought her 3 six wk old kittens to the barn yesterday. :celebrate She had them (surprise!), moved once & we knew where, moved again...never found. So I've been wondering. She comes to eat, leaves, always seen somewhere on the farm. Guess she has decided to bring them closer to food source. I helped with food/water in the barn for them! Picked one up, ok. Pick another up and what a fight that one put up! Third ran off where I couldn't reach it. NO matter. While I would like to pet them once in a while, just wanted barn cats -- mousers. The claws & teeth on that one told me no mouse would get away! Will have to catch in a month or two to do the neutering. :D Got to get that done!

    It's hot, it's only July but -- I have a 1.5 yr doe that appears to be coming into heat. :rolleyes: I'm not ready for that right now. She's a seasonal type, Saanen/Nubian cross, and Nubs sometimes cycle this early. Just not wanting a single kidding in mid Dec. Maybe the other 2 does her age will start soon. :idunno They are going to be bred soon anyway. Just like to group kiddings. :D =D

    That's it for me. Everyone drink water all day!!!! :old

    morning all going to make much needed hot tea... still wish it was coffee but oh well tis the season of my life. my husband keeps teasing about having a total of eight kids I think he lost it lol I wouldn't mind but we all should know my brain would be gone. laundry alone would be the cause lol I haven't caught up with folding and hanging the last few days I am hoping to get it done today along with other house chores that seem never ending. this weekend apparently starts today for my husband he has a four day weekend so that should be fun expect he claims we going to be working all weekend and no fun the party pooper. I can't decide what to cook for breakfast part of me wants donuts the other wants a sausage , egg , hash brown and biscuits. we shall see which wins out. I have to change out waters today and need to defend my garden some and still my compost from the chicken coop and put in there along with the rabbits manure. and start getting seeds planted I am a little behind but that's ok. I also need to find a place for my corn my husband built a fire pit in my garden area so that took over where I plant the corn so it will be outside my garden area so that's OK. I still wish I had a tiller but for now I am with a pick axe hay for clay. anyways I hear the one year old so I better get going he likes to beat his daddy up in bed so yah bye yall.

    @Jesusfreak101's husband: It is too hot to cook so you shouldn't do that. Take everyone out to dinner ;)
